Adobe has started shipping its new line of Acrobat 6.0 PDF creation and sharing software. These include Acrobat Professional, Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Elements and Acrobat Reader. They're available now for Mac OS X and Windows.

The new Acrobat 6.0 Professional offers several new features, including the ability to create PDFs from Microsoft Office applications; headers and footers, as well as watermarks; enhanced review management; preservation of layers created in some third-party applications; built-in preflighting; forms creation; commenting tools; enhanced navigation and viewing; and PDF/X compliance.
